Interaction with GuestsWe will welcome you and show you around and are happy to offer information or answer questions if you see us around. We enjoy meeting all the different people who stay with us. We are both natives to Cleveland and know a lot about the surrounding areas. Anne will be reachable by phone if you need her, otherwise we'll try to leave you to enjoy the peace and quiet.

Our home has all the conveniences of urban living including a 5 minute drive to the Cleveland Hopkins airport and dining/shopping/movie theatre right around the corner.
You can walk down the street a few blocks to take a hike or bike ride on the metro park trails, or hike right from our back yard into the park.
You could head to historic downtown Berea to pick up some pizza or sit down for a steak while you're in town visiting your child (perhaps?) at Baldwin Wallace College which is also 5 minutes away.
If you're in town for a convention or work in the city we're only 20 minutes from downtown Cleveland, the Convention Center, Rock n' Roll hall of fame, Casino, science center, stadiums, and Lake Erie. What a treat to return at night to a quiet and peaceful room after your excursions in the city.
If you're on a road-trip, we're very close to the Ohio Turnpike (80).
If you don't have a car we're very close to public transportation, Cleveland's Rapid Transit will take you right downtown in a flash.
